No. 42. Prepare Us

Chorus:
Prepare me,
Prepare me, Lord,
Prepare me,
When death shall shake this frame.

1
As I go down this stream of time,
When death shall shake this frame,
I'll leave this sin-ful world behind,
When death shall shake this frame.
Cho.-Prepare me, etc.
2
The man that loves to serve the Lord,
When death shall shake this frame;
He will receive his just reward,
When death shall shake this frame.
Cho.- Prepare me, etc.
3
Am I a soldier of the cross,
When death shall shake this frame;
Or must I count this soul as lost,
When death shall shake this frame.
Cho.- Prepare me, etc.
4
My soul is bound for that bright land,
When death shall shake this frame;
And there I'll meet that happy band,
When death shall shake this frame.
Cho.- Prepare me, etc.
